Porvorim, 28th October 2023: The Congress workers’ political theatrics, aimed at defending the unauthorized house and hindering the authorities from fulfilling their duties, exemplify the party’s decline, showing their readiness to go to any lengths.

Following an investigation, the Panchayat issued show cause notice on June 27, 2023.
However, no satisfactory response was received from Nilesh Chari leading to the issuance of a demolition order on August 8, 2023. Chari then appealed to the additional Panchayat supervisor, who confirmed the validity and appropriateness of the order, emphasizing the Panchayat’s decision.
